Art Development: Germans Part 5
I’m about to head out of town on a whirlwind trip to visit family…about 5,000 miles in 10 days. But wanted to get out a quick blog post before I’m off.
If you look at any of the French or Italian Recognition Cards, you’ll note the background sky for each ship has the same tone/coloring. This is particularly apparent when you take a look at the poster. Almost as if they’re all flying in the same sky “shot”.
This, of course, was done on purpose. Both to instantly provide a visual awareness of which ship is with which faction (even beyond the ships themselves), and ultimately to simply provide a cool look that sets the vibe for a given faction.
The Germans were no different…needed a new coloring/tone for the background, which J. embraced very quickly.
Here’s a screen shot of one of the German ships about 75% done.
Very static looking at this point, and not a lot of fine details…but those will come. And of course we’re currently having an internal discussion whether the coloring on the ship needs to be a little more unique to set the Germans off from the French and the British…
See ya next duty shift!
